If you are anything like me you are signed up to loads of different email lists that add absolutely no value to you, and you end up deleting the same emails from your inbox, selling you the same things each and every day. Or so you think…..
I have deleted loads of these emails over the past few weeks. I am training for my one 'Goosebump' event and am not signing up to anything else until that is done and dusted. I am in the mindset where I don't even want to know about what is on offer. However, for some reason, I decided to look back through my email inbox and trash yesterday afternoon. I virtually never do this, so I am not sure what was wrong yesterday, perhaps I hadn’t eaten enough??
Anyway, to my surprise, there was actually some useful running related stuff in there! It would appear that we are in 'race promotion season’ at the moment as I have received emails detailing no less that 19 different races or running festivals, urging me to sign up and run. So, in order to save you the hassle of trawling through your inbox and trash folder to find out about these races over the coming months, I have done it for you….
Below are the dates, race names and web links that I have received information about over the past few weeks. Enjoy!
